New Horror Network, 2 more days til Halloween!

I was watching the horror movie fest that AMC is brilliantly airing this year, when I saw a commercial for an all new channel just for horror and monster movies, called Monsters HD. They have a website up now with air times, at http://www.monsterstv.com/. You will have to check your local cable listings for what channel, but the prospects of an all monster movie network in High Def is very promising indeed. Also, they say that the movies are uncut. I have been burned by the 'Uncut' promises on DVD's, so I will have to tune in and see if it is true....

Speaking of the AMC horror movie marathon, I have seen so many films in the last couple of days it would be hard to go through them all. The one that is on the T.V. right now is the 1998 remake of 'Psycho' with Vince Vaughn as Bates. He does a pretty good job, but I laughed when he is in the dress at the end. Suprisingly, there are quite a few stars in this film, including Viggo Mortensen and William H. Macy. Not bad, pretty faithful to the original. Next on is Pet Semetary, which I haven't seen in years. I don't know if I can watch Pet Semetary 2 without thinking of Mr. Krabs saying 'Me Lucky Penny!' though...

The marathon ends on Halloween night, hosted by Rob Zombie and it looks to be the most promising of the networks horror offerings. It has gotten better over the last couple of years. I can't remember which year it was, but a few years back, there was hardly ANY horror movies shown at all on any of the networks the week before Halloween. Someone must have slapped some sense into them...

Rot your Vote!!

Please use your right to vote....for the horror character that would have the dirtiest U.S. Presidential Campaign! The poll is posted to the right, and Freddy Krueger is taking a good lead. I will make a campaign poster for the winner and post it here on the blog! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Introduction to the Club

I know that I am not the only fem who likes horror and scary films. Whether you are a die hard fan, or you are being made to watch them, this is the place for you! I want to discuss films that I have seen with other fans, and also take a look at the genres and history of the industry. Now I grew up more of a tomboy than a pretty princess, so I will not wrap the zombies up in pink ribbons and bows. My background is old school horror, so I would love to get into it about the newest, 'extreme gore' horror that has come out recently. I would also love to discuss some of the remakes and homages that have been produced in the last 10 years as well!

And even though you might not be a fan of the films, at least I can hopefully prepare you for the worse if you are made to watch them.
